The Kawasaki Racing Team will line up a strong duo next season; Romain and Jeremy won nine of the nineteen GPs this year and collected twenty podiums between them! Both ended the season on the final series podium with a silver medal for the Frenchman and bronze for the Swiss rider who has already contested the FIM Motocross World Championships for more than a decade.
Runner-up in the MX2 class in 2016 and 2017, Jeremy moved up to MXGP in 2018 and has already collected four series medals in the premier class; three-times silver (2019, 2020 and 2022) and one-time bronze. With thirty GP podiums, eight GP victories and eleven moto wins during the past five seasons he is the most consistent rider of the series and he hasn’t missed a single GP since 2014, finishing all bar nine motos during his 187 GP appearances! After spending his entire MX2 career with one brand he has raced the last six MXGP seasons with another before joining Kawasaki for the coming season; the amiable twenty-nine-year-old Swiss rider will make his racing debut on the KX 450-SR during the International series in February.
Jeremy Seewer: “I’ve been racing a long time with the same brand but I feel very welcome at Kawasaki where everyone has been very open and receptive to me; I think it’s a brand where I can fit in well. I’m looking forward to a long-term relationship and hope for the best; the main goal is to win as often as possible, to have success together, to enjoy working with great people and have fun doing it.”
Steve Guttridge (Race Planning Manager, Kawasaki Motors Europe): “I’ve always been a big fan of Jeremy because of his unreal technical ability on all the bikes I’ve seen him race in the past, both at MX2 and MXGP levels. Along with his obvious driven and professional mentality, it puts him into the very top few competitors in the world and in any conditions that the MXGPs can throw at him! So, to finally welcome him into our KRT MXGP team is indeed a super-exciting situation! Everyone at Kawasaki wishes him a very warm welcome and success throughout the fast-approaching 2024 season”.
Antti Pyrhonen (KRT team manager): “We at KRT, together with the riders, are working very hard to realise our potential in the coming season. Both Jeremy and Romain knows what they want; they know what they are aiming for and they will receive our utmost support for the task ahead. The 2024 KX450-SR has already proven its potential to be a winning bike in early tests after yet further development by Kawasaki’s R&D department. We are excited for the task ahead and will leave no stone unturned to achieve our goals.”
